Hi from colorado! I think I am a string hopper?

Hey everyone happy to be here! Just got my magnet and I want to start to understand my picking habits and start to improve. I understand the pick slanting ideas and movement ideas so excited to see whats best approach for me!

After watching all if not most of the content, I am still having trouble deciding what approach to take in my picking technique. I play in a latin group where we do some cumbia songs and latin leads. I love gypsy jazz too and that style of clean fast improvised licks. But generally I want to be able to play in any style with speed.

After recording my first video of minor swing intro, it looks like maybe I am a string hopper after all? Looking forward to meeting everyone and the feedback! Thanks

Here is link to my video:
